Chapter 3. Working with Project Options > Setting the Calculation Options

Setting the Calculation Options

There is a lot going on in the Calculation tab of the Options dialog. It covers a large number of the default actions that Project takes when Project calculates the schedule for your projects. This task explains how the application-specific calculation options and the early/late task adjustments work.

Setting the Application Calculation Options

Automatic Calculation is the best Calculation mode for almost all situations. It ensures that the schedule, costs, and other calculations in your projects are always up to date. Use the Manual option ONLY if you have experience dealing with the outcome, as it can cause confusion.

If you decide to set the calculation mode to Manual, make sure you come back to this dialog often and click the Calculate Now button.

The Calculate radio buttons set the scope of the calculation when it occurs. The default is to calculate all projects that are currently open.
